The Dictionary of Lost Words by Pip Williams

An enthralling novel which personalizes the creation of the Oxford English Dictionary through the eyes of a young girl and her father.

It takes place in Oxford in the Scriptorium, a converted garden shed where Esme sits under the sorting table collecting discarded words in a male orientated world.

Beautifully written spanning over the time of the suffragette movement and impending WW1.
